Wow, so I've had my LJ for that long (over ten years). Unfortunately, I haven't been very active the last years. XD



I miss LJ-days, with fandom och fangirling, but life moves on with other things. The other day however I was watching Kame's drama Kaito Tantei Yamaneko. I still like him, but I'm not sure about the drama though... ^^;

I wonder how everybody is? Not sure there still are fangirl friends around here any more.

Long time no see, and long time not doing memes. Bolded statements are those I agree with.
Source: http://pulptastic.com/23-things-people-love-spending-time-alone-will-understand/


1. A weekend in which you have no plans, no responsibilities, and nowhere at all to be, ranks as one of the best weekends you’ll ever have.
2. Sometimes friends will try to make plans with you and you have no reason to decline except for the fact that you just want to be alone that day. (Your plan is to have no plans, people need to understand that by now, right?)
3. A good album, book, or television show can keep your attention far longer than any party, club, or bar could.
4. Going away to a remote cabin in the middle of the woods to just exist for a period of time sounds like the best idea for a vacation that you can think of.
5. There is nothing more exciting than planning a long, solo road trip, because you know you’re going to be able to think your thoughts, listen to your music, and play your audiobooks for hours and hours on end. Is there anything better?
6. When people say they can’t eat alone at a restaurant, you’re like, really? That’s one of life’s simple pleasures! Food? Good. A book? Good. No conversation whatsoever? Perfect.
7. The worst trait any potential lover could have is “clingy.” You need your space like you need air to breathe. It’s essential. If they need to be around you all the time? Dealbreaker.
8. Even if you are attached, you carve out hours of alone time just to keep your sanity (and to keep your relationship healthy and happy, too).
9. The only person you’d ever consider marrying would be someone that also loves spending time alone, otherwise that thing’s never going to last.
10. If anyone that knew you were to describe you, one of the words they’d use emphatically to do so is: independent.
11. Your intuition is on point because you spend an insane amount of time alone and cultivating it.
12. While people around you hate being single, you consider it such a joy to be able to be at the whim of your aloneness and this feeling is especially better if you live alone, because you have so much time to do all your little things that you do when nobody is around.
13. You’re always working on a project –usually something artistic– and you start to get antsy if you haven’t been able to work on it for a few days.
14. When you do hang out with people, you prefer seeing them one on one or in a small group. The more intimate and deep the conversation, the better.
15. You are an observer –watching and studying people’s behavior– and, funny enough, are usually quite well-liked, which can serve to be a problem considering how much time you want to spend by yourself.
16. A full day by yourself makes you feel more you than anything at all.
17. You tend to enjoy cold, rainy weather, as it gives you even more of an excuse to hibernate in your home and read, sit by the fire, think, curl up, write in your journal.
18. If you are not thinking about life’s big questions, you must be dead.
19. Because you put a premium on spending time alone, you are more present and attentive when you do spend time with people, because you don’t feel as though you’re missing out on time by yourself.
20. You would much rather go on a hike or go to the beach by yourself than with anyone, which isn’t to say you dislike going with people, it’s just a more engaging experience when you do it alone.
21. Sure, it’s fun to drink wine with friends, but having a bottle of wine to yourself at the end of a long day? 100% perfect paradise heaven.
22. Traveling to a new place by yourself (even if the new place is only ten miles away) is your idea of a great time. You are always either planning a solo adventure, going on a solo adventure, or coming back from one. Experiencing the world through your own eyes without anybody else’s opinion is not just a desire, it’s an essential need of yours.
23. There is absolutely nothing that can touch the feeling of when someone cancels plans on you and you are suddenly left with surprise alone time. You’re all, “Oh good, more time to be with me!” and it’s truly an untouchable feeling of happiness.

My nails are starting to grow longer now. Of course they're not as programmer friendly as they grow, but I haven't needed to do programming for two weeks... which means I really should get a job soon. T_T;;

Last year (or was it the year before that?) I sewed a birthday card and send it to Kame, but the fan club returned it to me without opening (I guess they thought the envelope was a bit thick). I know about their rules and all, but it made me kind of sad and disappointed somehow and since then I haven't quite made a lot of fanstuff. Or maybe it's just because I'm getting old. It could also be that I'm not that into fandom anymore... ^^;

I think liking an idol is sometimes like having a crush on somebody, it will eventually fade, especially if it's a one-sided crush. I'm not saying that I've stopped liking Kame, but with a lot of fellow fangirls dropping out, it just doesn't feel that fun anymore.

Anyway, it's his birthday today and even though I haven't been very creative lately, I still want to honour him with a birthday post in my LJ.

So,

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, dear Kame-chan!! \(^O^)/

I guess it was impossible for me to focus on my studies as long as I didn't finish my Kame calendar, so I thought I might as well have it done and post it.

I'm not too satisfied with all choices of the Kame pictures, but while a lot of the raw pictures were cute or hot, the quality wasn't. T_T

Anyway, let lots of Kames cheer up your 2014! \o/



Previews and download links under the cut.

Sexy Kame, cutie Kame, multiplied Kame!Collapse )

... at least for now. My test last week went okay, though I really want to know which answers I got wrong. T_T

We'll have a homework project to do over Christmas holiday, and I haven't started yet, but I still got plenty of time, so I'm not in a hurry.

Instead, for the moment, I'm lazing around working on my Kame calendar for next year.

やっぱり、亀ちゃんは一番のアイドルです!私のだよ。

So I'm going to have an only-Kame calendar again. I found new features in Photoshop I haven't known of before, but making manipulating images easier and getting you some cool effects. ^^v




The backgrounds I used aren't mine, credits to whoever made them...Collapse )

Driving home after a long day's work (actually internship), singing along with Raymond. I was listening to the music in my playlist when I got stuck on this one. Aww... I really love this song. Reminds me of why I liked him (and still like) so much.. ^_^



I can have this song on repeat for years. ♥

Btw, the sharing features on YouTube nowadays work really smoothly. ^^b

I'm still rewatching Buzzer Beat every now and then; it was surely one of the best summer dramas I've watched. I really liked Pi's and Keiko's chemistry there. I'm not sure about this new Summer Nude however. It could be a real winner, since it's my favourite pairing, Pi and Erika, but it could also be a big disappointment because those two won't end up together, with Erika only being second lead in favour of Karina.

It's not like I dislike Karina or anything, she is just not interesting to me. I've watched her in several dramas, such as Love Shuffle and Priceless (and obviously in Usagi Drop and Ashita no Joe without me remembering it) and she didn't make any impact on me. But to be honest, maybe I'm a bit unfair to Karina, because, since Erika is my favourite actress I guess in the end it doesn't really matter whoever the other actress is. Or whoever is the male lead either. I just want Erika to be the main lead, but preferably with Pi... XD.

So yeah, it will be really 'meh' if Karina and Pi is the intended end love couple - which is the impression I get when reading previews and summary. T_T However, I know myself enough to realize I probably will watch this drama, no matter how much it will irks me while watching...



Anyway, I think that the poster shoots are on my side. See, Pi and Erika seem closer, alright? XD~

Haven't been playing board games with my friends for a while...

... but Kingdom Builder was surprisingly fun to play (maybe because luck was with me) and it didn't took that long.

The black ones were mine. I didn't win but came on second place. ^^

Yesterday, sis bought me a present. o(^O^)o



It's really a bathroom mat, but since my toilet is kind of small and I don't want the mat to get dirty either, so I put it in the doorway to my bedroom instead. Whenever you pass the treshold you would walk on her head though, so maybe I should put a sign there saying "Don't step on Kitty!" or "Please climb over". XD~



Kitty's apple looks like a toadstool (poisonous mushroom), not edible at all.... T_T;
